i still have mine, smack in the center of my 24" hitachi widescreen, i tried the pressure thing, flashing programs but nothing worked. i contacted the supplier who explained their policy was up to 4 on a 24" screen. but the maker's policy was 9!! so i decided to live with it. i would hate to send it back and receive another with 4. i think samsung have a no dead pixel policy, i may be wrong though.
mine's red so i only see it on start up and shut down.
